US-based card payment giants Visa and Mastercard have suspended Russia from operations in the latest attempts to isolate themselves from the world economy. Meanwhile, Russia has accused Ukraine of making nuclear "dirty bombs". Russian media on Sunday alleged, citing an unnamed source, that Ukraine was making a "dirty bomb" of plutonium-based nuclear weapons at Chernobyl.
However, the source did not provide any evidence related to this. TASS, RIA and Interfax news agencies on Sunday quoted "a representative of a competent body" in Russia as saying that Ukraine was developing nuclear weapons at the destroyed Chernobyl nuclear power plant that was shut down in 2000. Ukraine's government has denied this, saying it has no plans to rejoin the nuclear club after the breakup of the Soviet Union and giving up its nuclear weapons in 1994.
